lawyers representing the Gulf County Tax Collector (Eda Aerospace Workers have filed objection to that motion to
Ruth Taylor). the City of Port St. Joe. and St. Joe transfer venue.


Natural Gas Company have filed a motion for a change

p Court in the Northern District of Florida.
That hearing on the motion is scheduled to be held
today, Thursday. June 17th, in bankruptcy court in

Plans, Bids

On Community
Building,
Emergency
Generator System
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners reviewed the final plans
for improvements ,_to the
community building during their
regular meeting Monday evening.
As previously reported, the
board has agreed to lease the
( building to the Gulf County
Senior Citizens Association pro-
gram in return for continued pub-
lic use of the building and
improvements to the building
made by the senior citizens pro-
gram.
Some of the items included in
the project are a new ceiling, redo
of the front entranceway, and
remodeling the bathroom facili-
ties.
-; A 20' x 40' addition will be a
major portion of the project. While
the new building will add much
needed space for use by the
senior, citizens programs, it will
also be reinforced for severe wind
ratfings, and double up as a storm
shelter for the area. A breezeway
will separate the old and new
buildings.
Generator Bids
The board received three bids .,
for a new emergency generator
system to operate City Hall and
the water and sewer plants,
including sewer lift stations.
Bids were opened from Kenny.
Strange Electric (Wewahitchka).
Scott's Quality Electric (Port SL

City Begins Budget Planning Amid Uncertainties

Discuss Department Consolidation as Money Saver; Cuts In Garbage Collection Costs


Port St. Joe city commission-


ers are looking at several ways to


Power was shut off in the downtown area of Port St. Joe for
almost any hour last Friday afternoon when lightning struck high
power distribution lines in the alley between Williams and Ieid
Avenues.
The bolt brought most businesses to a standstill while Florida
Power crews spliced the severed line.


control expenditures as they
begin preparations for another
budget year full of uncertainties.
During a workshop session
last week, they discussed several
of the areas that needed to be,
_,,addressed to save tax dollars.
Consolidate WWTP and Water
Department
Mayor Frank Pate suggested
to the board that they consider
consolidating the wastewater
treatment plant and water depart-
ment operations as a cost-saving
measure.
Pate said he, wastewater
treatment plant supervisor Larry
McArdle. and City Clerk Pauline
Pendarvis had met to evaluate
ways to reduce the plant's S1.2
million projected operations bud-
get even further. Consolidating
the two city operations would
allow the city to utilize the fact
that some workers have dual cer-
Ufication and could wort at either
plant.
During the board's regular
meeting Tuesday evening, the
commissioners decided to hold'
another workshop on the consoli-
dation issue before they voted to
move forward with the idea.
If the department merger
takes place, It is estimated that
three employees would probably
be laid off or reassigned. The
measure would save approxi-
mately $150,000 in the opera-
tional budgets of the depart-
ments.
Pate pointed out that the
board has some hard choices to
make with the options to either
Scut the budget or raise taxes.

Cut Garbage Collection Cost
The board also discussed


ways to cut garage colecutiou
costs. In the past. garbage collec-
tion has been a money-maker for
the city, but the budget is tight
because excess garbage collection
funds are used to subsidize road-
, side trash pick-up.
The major reason for the pos-
itive cash flow is the fact that the
city. recycles its garbage-a
process which utilizes inmate
work crews to help sort and sepa-
rate garbage from recyclables.
That process begins at the homes
of city residents who separate
garbage from recyclables and bag
them accordingly.
The city board agreed to pur-
chase new garbage bags to assist
in that process and furnish them
to city residents. Mayor Pate also
suggested that Public Works reac-
Uvate the city's composting plant
to help further reduce the amount.
of garbage. That garbage has to be
hauled out of the county to be dis-
posed of-either In an approved
.pit or by incineration-at a cost to
the city of approximately $30 per
ton.
Public Works Superintendent
Terry McDaniel has pointed out
that the city could also save
money if residents would properly
separate and place roadside
trash.
McDaniel pointed out that
residents can't put aiy household
U garbage in the roadside pile.
"We've had entire trucks turned
back at the. landfill because of
chewing gum wrappers," he said.
When garbage piles are cont-
aminated with household gar-
bage, city crews have to manually
sort through the trash and sepa-
rate the items before they can be
hauled away, This costs time.and
money for the workers which


results in an increased cost to the
taxpayers. "It's also important to
keep yard debris separated from
metal and other roadside trash
items." McDaniel added.
In Other Business
*Agreed to allow the
Washington Improvement Group
(WIG) to: air condition the old
Washington High gym complex as
a part of the city's agreement to
lease the building to, WIG. The
board noted that the lease needed
to be finalized before WIG goes
forward with those plans.
City Attorney Russell Scholz
told the board that WIG had a
copy of the final draft of the lease
ready for its acceptance.
*Agreed to advertise for a
variance to allow the Gulf County
A.R.C. and Tiansportation to
change the location of its group
home to 504 Peters Street from
326 Avenue C. The board unani-
mously supported the request.
*Were advised by the board's
attorney of plans to ask the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District for a 60-day
delay in the city's response for
plans to meet increased demands
on its potable water supply.
*Agreed to wait until the city's
economic situation improves
before considering a request to
remove and relocate the fence
sepa-ating the old'cemetery from
the new perpetual care section.
Marion Simmons requested the
board make the change.
*The board asked Public
Works Superintendent Terry
McDaniel to examine the condi-
tion of the sidewalks on Fourth
Street after Judy Hine described
injuries her sister received after
tripping on the sidewalk.

DOT's Responsibility

THE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT of Transportation is
not exactly setting a precedent by taking over the ownership of a
portion of C-30A to maintain. A few years ago this was the main
roadbed of U.S. Highway 98 between here and Apalachicola and
the DOT had the .responsibility of keeping the road in reasonably
tip-top shape all the time. Now, it could be classed as a secondary
state road without stretching its credibility any at all. The artery
still connects two cities; funnels traffic to a military installation or
two or three, a couple of state parks and the fastest growing com-
munity in the county.
It serves a lot of people, the places they work and the places
where they live. It is a vital stretch of highway; probably more so,
than when it was the primary route of Highway 98.
THIS NEWSPAPER CALLED ATTENTION to the road's exis-
tence as the main artery to a fast-growing section of Florida and
deserving of state attention, some weeks ago.
After several years of the Gulf County Commission attempting
to persuade the DOT to assume responsibility for the stretch of
road, it appears as if they have succeeded. Now, is the time to
begin an Intensive campaign with DOT to Improve the road to ade-
quately care for the amount of traffic it is sure to attract. We
shouldn't wait until the traffic count is horrendous before we call
out for help, causing hard feelings toward the DOT because they
'don't drop everything they already have cooking and come run-
ning to take care of our needs. It just doesn't work that way.
The DOT accepting improvement responsibility for this stretch
of highway is a move in the right direction.
ACCEPTANCE' OF LIKE RESPONSIBILITY for C-30E also
bodes well for Gulf County. If ever there was a road with other
than county responsibilities on it. this road has it. State and fed-
eral installations abound on this stretch of road which winds
through the middle of St. Joseph Peninsula. It is to the interest of
the state and federal government that the road be properly sized
and kept in top condition. Only the state and federal governments
have the resources to properly do this. We applaud their pending
acceptance of the road.
Evidence of our reasoning for calling attention to a need for
upgrading of both stretches of highway can be borne out in the
state finally leaning this way. You see, this wasn't the first blush
of such a suggestion being considered. The county has worked
long and hard on this project and it's finally bearing fruit.


Saving Us Money

GULF CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION has been officially rec-
ognized for some of the good deeds they have performed for the
county. This also is the case for the two political subdivisions in
the county. A good portion of the public works wouldn't get done
if the prison community in the county didn't do the various tasks.
They do most of the labor-intensive jobs accomplished inside the
county, from beautifying parks to collecting garbage and do them
well.
In the process of making their presence felt with their good
works, tfie'y'also save the'tax p"yer a s ign'fian't an'ourtf of dol-
lars.,,qur streets 'wouldn't be nearly so' clean, were'it not for the
GCI and Gulf Forestry work crews. Our'parksA would not be'hear-
ly so presentable if it wasn't for the prison work crews. Even our
budgets wouldn't be nearly so low if we had to pay full wages for
all the labor which is expended by the inmate work crew on each
and every day.
DURING THESE PRESENT TIMES here in Gulf County. we
need to practice every frugal means of getting things done that we
can. The DOC has given us an avenue of keeping things going
w without causing all of us to' gd'into bankruptcy.
When any public project'is thought up. the first solution any-'
one comes up with, is, "Get the prison work crews to commit to it
and it'll get done. right!" We know. the Rotary Club, in its ambi-
tious plans to build a ,scouting complex in Port St. Joe. has sug-
gested (o get the work crews involved in'the building. We'll. be will-
ing to surmise that school superintendent.Jerry Kelley has it"in
the back of his mind to utilize the same crews, in some manner.
to accomplish the-need for a field house and lights for the girls'
softball field. .He hasn't expressed such. but, we'd- be willing to
wager that he intends to. He said Tuesday that he. "might just
have an idea to get them built without costing the school district
much."
-And,'to think, there were folks who opposed the prisons com-
ing to Gulf County. Gulf County needs both the jobs they bring
and the tasks they perform

"Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay ..."
City crews have begun work to construct a fishing platform off one of the remaining oil off-
loading docks adjacent to the Port St. Joe Marina. City commissioners have maintained a constant
commitment to keep the "oil docks" available for public use.
Public Works Department employees Jimmy Griffin and Theo Taylor are at work building hand
rails around the perimeter of the platform. Plans are to construct a sitting area and ramp to access
the fishing spot. The area will also serve as an excellent location for sight-seers to enjoy one of
the most beautiful sunsets in the world over St. Joseph Bay.

some of the flowers have' been,
taken from the city's planter bar-

SThe planter barrels were pur-

placed around the town by the

lt An "Adopt-A-Plantef" 'pro-
dram was sponsored by the
Wewahitchka Woman's, Club
which, along with other
community volunteers, placed the
plants in the barrels. City com-

Criticize Dismissal of Asst. Director


June 14, 1999


Dear Editor:


This is in reference to the May
13 barring of Dee Edwards from
Bay St. Joseph Care Center, the
cancelling of her weekly program
for the residents, and the subse-
quent dismissal of the assistant
activities director Betty.,
Huckeby-twvo individuals .who
cared about die residents at the
care center and who are now
barred from even visiting.
I feel the welfare and interests


of the residents residing in the
care center. many of them not
able to voice what they feel, were
not taken into consideration
regarding these harsh decisions.
It seems this is one more ,thing
taken away from them.
Let us hope that the "brains"
behind these outrages will be able
to 'fill in the time with programs
and care that will be as beneficial
to the residents. After all,, they are
the ones the whole operation is
about. Aren't they?

Attorneys representing the
Gulf County Tax Collector, the
City of Port St. Joe, and St. Joe

since mention was made of a class

change of venue.
The Gulf : County Tax
Collector's attorney Pat Floyd had,
viewed the change of venue as a

Safety Steps Can Help the Fourth

To Truly "Sparkle" With Enjoyment of the Celebration


By Bill Nelson, State Fire Marshal
and Insurance Commissioner
For many of us, the Fourth of
July means family gatherings,
hamburgers or barbecue chicken
on the grill, the sweet taste of.
watermelon, and the awesome
sight of a community fireworks


A Special Thanks
The family members of the
late Harold David Hatcher wish to
express their sincere appreciation
of all acts of kindness shown dur-
ing the passing of their loved one.
It is wonderful to have family
and friends like you.
Special thanks to Gene,
Bradley, Roy and Margaret Todd,;
and Gene Raffleld.

display. But, upon reflection, we
also know the holiday weekend
can be spoiled by injuries suffered
in the improper use of sparklers
or the illegal use of fireworks.
Each year, thousands of
Americans-mostly males age 19
or younger-suffer unnecessary
and sometimes life-threatening
injuries from fireworks.
The Consumer Product Salety
Commission reports that hospi-
tals treated an estimated 8,500
fireworks-related injuries across
the nation last year, an increase
of 200 over the previous year. This
year, federal officials expect even
wider fireworks use leading up' to
the new millennium.
This heightened activity fol-
lows a steady increase in con-,
sumer use in recent years.
Consumption increased from 67.6
million pounds of fireworks in


1990 to more than 118 million
pounds by 1996, according to the
U.S. International Trade Commis-
sion.
On a state level, we saw a
reduction in property damage
from fireworks incidents last year.
But this was due to the temporary
ban on all fireworks during the
devastating wildfires. From 1990
through 1997, Floridians reported
1,688 fireworks-related incidents
that caused 'nearly $1 million
worth of damage. During this
eight-year period, 62 people were
hurt, including six firefighters.
These figures point up the
need to know and respect the law,
and to take safety precautions
when using sparklers or other
novelties permitted under Florida
law.
The law allows the sale and
use of sparklers and novelties
approved by the State Fire
Marshal, but outlaws the private
use of products that you either
explode or launch. The sale or use
of illegal fireworks can result in a
one-year jail term and a fire of up


to $1,000.
Here are some tips for a safe
July Fourth:
*Avoid sparklers, fountains or
other products that lack clear
labels. Each item should include
a manufacturer's name, and
instructions that you should care-
fully follow.
,Avoid illegal explosives com-

The arrival of the Year 2000 is particu-
larly challenging to date-sensitive business-
es and industries. Accordingly, banking has
been under scrutiny for its industry-wide
ability to meet those challenges when the
new millennium arrives.
For more than a year, most every
FDIC-insured financial institution in
America has had Task Forces at work.
Banks have reviewed and adapted their
systems for Year 2000 compliance. The
federal agencies which regulate banking
have been on site at every bank and thrift
in the nation to ensure their progress
towards becoming Year 2000-compliant,
using astringent set of guidelines. These


I 9 WNER:-KIM LEWIS6 8
iiAV1FNIE e DOWNTOWN APAI.~A


guidelines have been in place for many
months and have set strict standards and
time frames'eunder which Citizens Federal
Savings Bank....and all other banks...have
been supervised.
As an industry, banking has worked
diligently to become prepared to meet our
nation's financial needs when the Year
2000 arrives. In fact, Year 2000 experts
have identified the banking industry as
being Number One .in preparedness for
the Year 2000. We're not working to win
awards, though. We're working to be sure
that when the Year 2000 rolls around, we
can treat its first day it as just another
banking day.

Se a a s e a e Marinades add summertime flavor


It's time for backyard chefs to light
their fires and gear up for another sea-
son of great grilling.
Pat relies on marinades to bring extra
flavor and increase the meat's tender-
ness. A marinade should contain some
form of weak acid-like salsa, wine, or
vinegar-that will tenderize the meat
surfaces by breaking down muscle
fibers. Here's some tips to keep in
mind when marinating beef for your,
summer barbecue:
* Because marinade is acidic, marina-,
tion should not be done in a metal con-
tainer. Use a plastic bag or a glass
utility dish. The beef should fit snugly
but lie flat.
* Always marinate in the refrigerator;
never at room temperature.
Beef must be marinated at least 6
hours for tenderization to take place.
Marinating longer than 24 hours causes
meat fibers on surface to break down,
causing a mushy texture. .
Never re-use a marinade-left over
marinade that was used with raw beef
should be discarded.
Do not salt meat before cooking-
meat will lose moisture and be dry..
You can't go wrong with the Bar-
becued Chuck Steak marinade accord-
ing to Pat. And since she marinades
Farmland Black Angus Beef, she
knows it will be packed with juicy
flavor. The blend of salsa and bar-
becue sauce provides a unique taste.
Farmland Black Angus Beef
Barbecued Chuck Steak
2 to 3 pounds Farmland Black Angus
Boneless Chuck Steak
Seasoned salt, to taste
2 cups salsa
1 cup barbecue sauce
Cut steak into strips about 4-inches
long and 1-inch wide. Sprinkle, with
seasoned salt. then place in plastic
resealable bag. Pour salsa and barbecue
sauce over beef. Seal and refrigerate
overnight.
Drain, discarding marinade. Heat grill
to medium-high heat Grill meat, turn-


ing to brown meat evenly, about 8 to
12 minutes, or until done as desired.
Makes 8 to 12 servings.
Tip' For easy grilling, thread beef
strips onto skewers.
Note: If desired, substitute sirloin for
chuck. Marinate, refrigerate, 4 to 5
hours or overnight. Drain and cook as
directed.
Try pairing this basil Parmesan potato
salad with the FarmlandBlack Angus
Beef Barbecue Chuck Steak at one of
your picnics.
Basil Parmesan Potato Salad
2 lb. new red potatoes, scrubbed
thoroughly (about 12)
1 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
Yogurt Dressing:
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 package (3 oz.) shredded
Parmesan cheese (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
* Cook potatoes in boiling water for
'30 minutes or until tender when
pierced with a fork. Drain; cool. Cut
into bite-size pieces. Add celery, green
onions and basil. In small bowl, stir
together dressing ingredients; pour
over potato mixture. Stir to combine.
Refrigerate until chilled. Makes 4
to 6 servings.

Outdoors in the
".- Panhandle
. ". by Gene Childs
Florida Outdoor Writers' Assocation
'* ~~~ *


I struggled mightily to walk in
those footsteps. I stretched and
almost had to hop to match the
strides as I followed my father
around the fence rows and fields of
south Georgia when we hunted or
fished. I never noticed, nor can
even remember, when I had to slow
my pace or abbreviate my stride so
my father could keep up with me.
Freshwater fishing is still pro-
ducing good quality catches.
Anglers from Alabama and Georgia
are visiting in good numbers to
fish 'our rivers .arid creeks. Many
have come to fly fish for the shell-
crackers' and:'"painted" bream, as
they're called locally.
A four-weight fly rod seems to
be the favorite weapon of choice
and poppers in yellow or yellow
and red are catching some nice.
one to two-pound bream. Again,
early and late are the best times.
With this week's gully-washing
afternoon showers, finding good
water is a bit tougher.
Bay fishing has suffered some
from all the rain also. Most of the
bay this week was as dark as the
Suwanee River. Trout, though, still
bit good. Topwaters where possible
are producing well, but live baits
are the best choice.
Redfish are all over the flats
and many are throwbacks because
they're too big. They seem to hit
topwaters, jigs, or live bait-what-
ever you put in front of them. Your
best bet is a big lively bull minnow
or a fresh shrimp. Only one red per'
person 27, inches or smaller may
be kept.
Disappointing is the key word
on the nearshore fishing report.


Sporadic catches of Spanish and
kings are reported but no real run
yet. Trolling along the beaches will
pick up a few Spanish, but not in
the numbers we've come to expect.
Bluefish are everywhere and will
keep the rods bent, but the
Spanish are still scarce.
The usually fish-rich buoy line
channel is full of bait pods, but not
many game fish. A school or two of
Spanish or king will show, a few
will be boated, then they'll disap-
pear. Very few cobia have been
sighted around the buoys or over
nearshore wrecks or reefs.:
Offshore fishing is more
dependable. Catches of red snap-
per and grouper are still good, and
some boats report dolphin, kings,
and a few wahoo being caught. The.
Gatewood and areas around there
held fish this weekend and several,
kings, over 30 pounds were boated.
The Air Force Tower and LST also
produced 'a mixed bag of fish for
anglers on these spots.
Two or three days of different
weather can have huge schools of
game fish, on most sites, so stay on
the water and fish whenever possi-
ble.
I always watched in amaze-
ment and fascination as my father
would tie knots, field strip a gun,
or fix a.bike. Now, he looks to me
to help do all the things for him
that he patiently taught me to do.
I see my son now watch me in
fascination as I use GPS, track a
deer, or sight cast to a tailing red
on the flats. I see now, very clear-,
ly, the part that I play iri keeping
the circle unbroken. Happy
Father's Day, Papa.

St. Joe Stars Blast Thru Lake City Diamonds


The "St. Joe Stars" had a
great time on the road this week-
end, but not without injuries. The
starting pitcher Lyndsey Hill left
the mound in the end of the sec-
ond inning of the first game with
a bad shoulder.


Molly Garrett left a game after
being hit in the throat, along with
Hayley Quintana, who was
benched with inner ear problems.
Being plagued with injuries,
the team stood with a valiant


effort. Great pitching by Becky
Belin, fantastic third base action
by Daphne Crosby, and the gold-
en glove of Melissa Nixon on first
kept St.,Joe Stars in the hunt for
the first place trophy.

Port St. Joe's Dixie Baseball
1999 Minor League champions,
Rich's IGA, took second place in
District IV double elimination
tournament play that concluded
last week in Eastpoint. They com-
peted against teams from
Franklin County, Wewahitchka,
Bayou George,. and. the winners
from Callaway.
After beginning the tourney
on Saturday, Port St. Joe's team
had advanced to the champi-
onship.. game' -on Wednesday
ixere Lhey suffered a, 9-5 loss to
Callaway. -
, During the two weeks prior to
the tournament, Port St. Joe's-
team had to make a transition to
plain with (and hitting against)
a live pitcher on the mound-after
Sd-regular season of pitching
machine games :
Among the St. Joe pitchers
rising to the occasion was Jamie
Ca\wthron who did a good job of
leading the team Wednesday
night. He went the distance on the


mounrid striking out five and walk-
ing just three.
Recording hits in the champi-
'onship game were Cawthron with
a single and a double, and Randy
Myrick who banged out a triple.
Both teams remained score-
less until St. Joe posted the first
run on' the board after Callaway
gave up a series of base-on-balls
and a hit batsman. Their oppo-
nent matched the run in the
fourth inning.,
The Callawavy bats got hot' in
-.the fifth inning and .they tallied
six more runs to bring the score
to 7-1. St. Joe mustered one run
in the bottom of the fifth to close
the gap to 7-2,' while leaving the
bases loaded for the third time in
the game.
In the top of the sixth inning.
Callaway topped its score offi at
nine. The IGA batters stepped up
determined to pull back into the
game, but, were cut short with
only three crossing the plate.
leaving a final score of 9-5.


Coach John Wright gives the team a "thumbs up" for a well
fought game championship against Callaway, in spite of the 9-5
loss they had just suffered. "Look at me guys, and let me see you
smile, you did a great job!" he said to the team, proud of their
efforts, as were Coaches Martin Adkison and Mark Ellmer.

could get 15% off for excellent behavior. Five years? 25%."

Saturday night. Port St. Joe lost a
close one to Callaway National
with a score of 37-35.
The, team returned Tuesday
night at 7 p.m. to battle its way
through the losers' bracket. They
took a commanding 32-18 victory

each of the three innings in the
run-rule shortened game.

and came to life! With each good
hit or defensive play came
questions like "When do we
get our pizza?" and "Can we get
pizza now?"

thought of the round pie reward,
defeated and eliminated Callaway
National with a score of 34-30.
[NOTE: Coach promised "In
two more games."]
Thursday night St. Joe
stormed to a 26-10 victory with
another run-rule shortened game

question changed however to, "Do
we get pizza if we don't win?"
Coach Otwell responded, "No, but
we will win!"


The only team remaining to
compete with Port St. Joe was
Lynn Haven, so the local team
traveled to Callaway's field one

claimed first place after racing to
a 31-24 victory. After team trophy,

that now they want to enter

and Thei
While It is quite common' to
hear about a variety of health '
issues, sometimes males get over-
looked in the quest for healthy liv-
ing. "National Men's Health
Week" is June 14 to 20, in con-
Junction with Fatlier's Day, and a
good time to think about ways to
incorporate exercise and healthy
living into dad's daily routine.
"Father's Day gives us an
opportunity to focus on a broad
range of men's health issues from
heart disease to cancer," said
Robert S. Forster, M.D., vice pres-
ident of care and network man-
agement for Blue Cross and Blue
Shield '.of Florida's North
Geographic Business Unit. "We
want to provide men and their
families with information to help
everyone understand these prob-
lems and what can be done to try
to prevent them."
Here are some tips to help,,
dad and the rest of the family stay
healthier:
*Limit meat intake to two or .
three portions of meat, poultry,
and fish per day (five to seven
ounces total). One' serving 'is
about the size of a deck of cards,
And choose leaner cuts. such as
those with "round" or "loin" In the
name.
*Mix up activities, and try to
get in 30 minutes of brisk aerobic
activity every day. Exercise with a
spouse or friend to incorporate
camaraderie and social interac-
tion.
*Resist fried foods whenever
possible. Try roasting, baking,
broiling, grilling or stir'-frying.
*Stop smoking or don't start.
As soon as you stop smoking,
your lungs begin to repair them-
selves. After ten years, your risk
of lung cancer drops to 30-50 per-
cent of that of sihokers who didn't,
quit. arid after 15 to 20 years, the
risk becomes similar to someone
who never smoked.
**Drink plenty of water,
Experts suggest six eight-ounce
glasses; dally. Try substituting
water 'fdr other beverages during
meals.
*Drink responsibly. Men who
consume- between two and six'
drinks per week have nearly half
the risk of exposure to alcohol-r,
related factors that may lead to
death as men who consume two,
or more drinks per day. L
*Gradually change your tou-'
tine. Drink lower-fat, milks cut
back on high-fat bread toppings.'
oils and salad dressings. Try


FHP License arid
Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from June 18th through
24th. on CR-274 hear Chipola
River, SR-71 near' CR-382. and
SR-71 near SR-22.
:Recognizing the danger pre-
sented.to the public bydefective
vehicle equipment. troopers will
concentrate their efforts on v'ehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires.
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who would vio-
late the .river license laws of.
Florida. '
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an 'effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws pf Florida
ensuring the protection of all "
motorists. '


r, Health
mushrooms instead of pepperoni
on pizza, '
*Set realisdtiegoals. While out-
landish targets might seem' more
macho, losing just one pound per
week Is a good goal. and cutting
out approximately 500 calories
per day will accomplish it. Losing
five to 10 percent of your body'
weight can improve health and'
reduce the risk of many health
problems including heart disease.
some cancers and diabetes.

MEDITATIONS OF A
Tountrt I1readpr

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
What do you
Think ?
'As one thinketh in
his heart, so is he."
Proverbs 23:7

'O CONTROL the actions of our body, we' must
first control the thoughts and imaginations of our mind.
II Corinthians 10:5 "Casting down imaginations
and every high thought that exalteth itself against the
knowledge of God."
Nahum 1:11 cautions there is a wicked counselor
within that imagines evil against the Lord. That is-
Satan, of course, and he manages to plant those evil
imaginations within our minds.
Our thoughts and imaginations are Satan's only
stronghold upon you and me. Satan is a spirit, and& we
cannot see him. But we have the weapons needed to
defend ourselves against his temptations-The Word of
God, The Holy Bible.
The fourth chapter of Matthew and also Luke, tells
us of the temptation of Jesus. His 'defense against
Satan's suggestions was just that, The Word of God, the
same defense you- and L:have at our disposal.
Do we spend some time each day, reading God's
Word? We must prepare ourselves for our never-ending
struggle against Satan's, enticements. We should know
what God says to us. Jesus used the Word of God, quite
successfully, in every instance of Satan's temptations.
You and I can be just as successful against his wiles, if
we KNOW The Word of God. Knowing the Word of God
will also strengthen our faith. (Romans 10:17).
The Bible is the greatest Book ever given to the"
world. Itis a warning from our Holy God, that we need
saving from a perishing world. The Bible is filled with
the promises of eternal blessings from That God, We
can make claim on those promises, simply by believing
in Him. Faith is the only key to that eternal life.
History records the unshakable faith of multitudes
of this world's greatest, such as Charles Dickens, John
Ruskin, Daniel Webster, Robert E. Lee, Horace Greely,
Goethe, Napoleon, Thomas Carlyle, Van Dyke, George
Washington, John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln,
.and thousands and multitudes of this world's wise.
Do you know The Word of God?

Fellowship With

The Father

In 1 John 1:3 we find, "That
which we have seen and heard we
proclaim also to you. So that you
may have fellowship with us; and
Oliver F. Taylor our fellowship is with the Father
Visitation Minister, First and with His Son Jesus Christ."
United Methodist Churc4h This scripture deals with rela-
tionships.
As a p Oart, ofa family we have relationships with oth-
ers. The relationships we have with our fathers should
be special. Sunday is Father's Day. It is a: time of mem-
ory. Each of us have memories that belong only to us.
Our scripture reminds us of the relationship with"
Jesus to His Father. There has never been no greater
love. This; is the kind of love we know through our fami-
lies and fathers as re- seek His love in ouT lives.

our grounds.
S'Mrs. Likely ended the ceremo-
ny with these resounding words
that best describes how we want to
be known:
"As we prepare to make new
memories in our new school set-
ting, we shall ask all our students
to stand as we sing our song, "The
School Beside the Bay" to the tune
of "Yellow Submarine".
In a town where we all live is a
school nearby the sea. .
Here it's been for 50 years. There,
to teach both you and me.
Chorus: We all go to a school
beside the sea, school beside
the sea, school beside the sea,
... repeat.
And our friends are all on board,
captain and teachers we all
adore. .
Building lives and building
dreams, all for one, a perfect
team. ..'
Chorus same as above.
Though our school will be no'
more, there's so much we still
have in store.
For our school will never die;
Highland View has changed
all our lives.
Chorus: We all cherish the school
beside the sea, school beside
the sea, school besidethe sea,
Repeat. ..... .. .

Mrs. Likely spoke on as a hun-
dred or so brightly-colored bal-
loons were released to soar among
the waves in the air as the eagle
soars. .
"This is symbolic of our inten-
tions to soar as high as we can, no
matter where we are in our educa-
- tional endeavors. We are going to
look forward to even better and
greater things. We are going to
make our place wherever we are,

June to August is"Sea


* Turtle Protection Month"


Honors the Gainesville-Based
Caribbean Conservation Corp.

On May 25th, the Florida gov-
ernor and cabinet passed two res-
olutions related to sea turtle pro-
tection in Florida. In the first res-
olution, the governor and cabinet,
recognizing the significant role
Florida's beaches play in the pro-
tection of threatened and endan-
gered sea turtle populations, des-
ignated the months of "June,
July, and August as Sea Turtle
Protection Months" in Florida.
The resolution noted that:
*"Over 90% of all sea turtle
nesting in North America takes
place on Florida beaches." ,
*"Actions taken in Florida to
protect sea turtles and their habi-
tats will profoundly affect the
global survival of the species."
*"Sea turtles exist in a frac-
tion of the numbers they once did.
with humans playing the leading
role in their decline."
During these months, sea
turtle nesting in Florida is at its
peak. The governor and cabinet
encourages all state agencies to
"provide a heightened protection
for sea turtles during these
months, and implores the citizens
of Florida to be aware ,of' the
increased vulnerability of sea tur-

Coastal -sea walls on nesting
